Roman Bioarchaeology Carnival XVIII

Wow, and I thought the last few months have been slow in terms of Roman skeleton news... this month, I have, well, four links, none of which is technically Roman in date:

  • So this is also Anglo-Saxon, but it is a really cool find - a woman buried with a cow.  According to the article, only 31 burials with animals have been found in England... all of them male and all of them with horses.  This woman buried with a cow is a very interesting discovery, and I hope more information about it comes out soon.

Let's hope the start of summer excavations at various sites in Italy will bring some interesting skeleton finds next month!
